Come on over to the office every other Wednesday for a coffee & conversation specifically for newcomers!

Hi my name is Sukhi I am an international student from the UK I arrived to Canada in January 2022 with my daughter who is 10 years old. Moving to Canada was the biggest step I have ever taken leaving behind family and everything I knew was not an easy decision but I know it was the best decision for me and my daughter. I have been in Canada for 10 months now but I am still learning new ways of doing things in Canada. This is one of the reasons why I want to help run the Immigrant Women group as I strangely feel that if I had the access to this kind of group and support network when I first arrived to Canada then it would have made the transition easier, I therefore want to be able to support other international women that are going through this change.

Hello, my name is Garnel! I am a Newcomer to Canada, I have been living in this beautiful country for the last four years. I am originally from South Africa.

I have two children, ages 7 and 9 years old. I am currently pursuing my goal of becoming a Social service worker.
